Play from Graveyard in Modern?

Modern forum

Posted on May 6, 2018, 2:21 p.m. by Catalog9000

I'm looking for a spell that let's me cast creature / artifact spells from my graveyard reliably.

Looking to build a deck around cards such as Burning Vengeance, Impact Tremors, Barrage Ogre, and Orcish Vandal and using -cost artifacts as my source.

Just a fun casual deck that's super annoying. Placing this question in the Modern thread because my group plays Modern the most.

Havengul Lich? Combos with Heartless Summoning and Priest of Urabrask. Also works well with Perilous Myr, and Devil's Play. That is a pretty old school combo, though.

If you wanna go instant and sorcerys theres Past in Flames you could always try Second Sunrise

Unfortunately Second Sunrise remains banned in modern, after Cifka's dominance with eggs a few years back.

I meant Faith's Reward they both do the same thing

You might have better luck ditching the Orcish Vandal plan and instead just casting Gravecrawler or Squee, the Immortal over and over again to trigger Burning Vengenace, possibly with a sac outlet like Barrage of Expendables to deal more damage (probably a better sac outlet, couldn't think of one though). Alternatively, as said by TheDuggernaught, Havengul Lich + Heartless Summoning +Priest of Urabrask/Perilous Myr is infinite. Priest requires a Vengenace, Impact Tremors, or infinite mana dump to actually win though.

RazortoothMtg The sac outlet you're looking for is Blasting Station. ;)

Throw in Ornithopter and Enduring Renewal and you've got yourself quite some brew haha. And yes, Renewal is Modern legal in case anyone was wondering.

If you want a grindy method, there's always pias revolution, though I'm not sure how viable it is.

If you have Burning Vengeance and Impact Tremors in play, I think the best strategy might be to cast Life from the Loam to get some lands so you can retrace Worm Harvest and Flame Jab.
